Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Torres performance v Cardiff

Fernando Torres

Fernando Torres may have scored the matchwinner, but many Chelsea fans still want to see him leave this summer.

Chelsea have finished their season without silverware under Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese boss has had an up and down campaign, masterminding excellent results against Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal before losing to the likes of Sunderland, Crystal Palace and yesterday, very nearly, Cardiff City.

Craig Bellamy had put the Bluebirds ahead in the game, but two goals in the space of a few minutes from Andre Schurrle and Fernando Torres won them the game.

For Torres it was a goal that was much needed after what was a poor performance from him for much of the game, as he continues to fail in his bid to be worth the £50 million Roman Abramovich splashed out on hi.

His struggles were evident early on, or at least his luck was, when he was denied a shot on goal by a hoard of balloons.

Torres struggled to see the ball among the festivities and ambled away from what was an empty net. But in the end Torres did find luck, staying onside to tuck away a shot beyond David Marshall from close range.

That goal was however just his fifth goal in the Premier League and his 11th overall - his lowest tally in a full league season since joining the club and his joint lowest overall tally.

But Jose Mourinho, who has desperately missed a free flowing goal scorer up top, has now stated that the Spaniard is going nowhere. After the game he stated:

Yes, he's in my plans. He's a good player. I keep saying the same - Fernando is not the kind of player that with half a chance, he scores a goal. He's not the kind of guy that's going to score goal after goal. But the way he works, the way he moves, the work he contributes for the team... he is a player that I like, a player that the club respects and we are happy to have him next season, no problem."

For some Chelsea fans this will not come as good news. Despite scoring yesterday many were not pleased with his performance, as they haven't been for sometime, and would be keen to see the back of him.
